History:

Theodosius I (LatinFlavius Theodosius Augustus;

 11 January 347 – 17 January 395), also known as

Theodosius the Great, was Roman Emperor from

379 to 395. Theodosius was the last emperor to rule

over both the eastern and the western halves of the

 Roman Empire. On accepting his elevation, he

campaigned against Goths and other barbarians who

 had invaded the Empire; he failed to kill, expel, or

entirely subjugate them, and after the Gothic War

 they established a homeland south of the Danube,

in Illyricum, within the empire's borders. He fought

 two destructive civil wars, in which he defeated

the usurpers Magnus Maximus and Eugeniusat

great cost to the power of the Empire.
